Gas in the tank? Petcock turned on? Don't laugh. It's stumped quite a few of us.

Prolly one of them extra parts you mention a few pages back. Never a good sign when fiddling with a carb.

I remember the first weekend I took my XR650R out for a ride. I got it started once then kicked it like 600 times and could not get that pig going again. I was about ready to burn it.

flooded

If the plug was that fouled, and took that many tries to start, maybe the cylinder walls are washed down. Try squirting some oil in the sparkplug hole next time you have it pulled.

The spark plug i put in today was still nice and clean when i pulled it out again to test for a spark. What kind of oil should i put in there?

hold the throttle wide open, choke off, starter fluid in the air box, and kick it and see what happens.

Dude I don't even like cars, I like Mossikles. Previous things are why I wouldn't bring up my name out there lol. I do know some racers that rode out there, I'll try to hook u up with them. I've heard its not great for bikes, the previous owner put guardrails around the track, it'll turn you to Swiss cheese if u go off in a corner!
